Chelsea winger Pedro is hoping to renew his Chelsea contract, which is set to expire at the end of the season.

Pedro joined Chelsea from Barcelona in the summer of 2015 for a reported fee of £21m.

Pedro will be turning 32 soon and Chelsea only give players over 30 one-year extension though an exception was made for David Luiz recently.

Pedro scored 8 goals and provided 2 assists in 31 appearances for Chelsea and he could play an important role in the team this season under Frank Lampard.

Revealing his desire to extend his Chelsea contract, Pedro said: “I’ve got one year left on my contract at Chelsea and I hope I can stay there as long as possible. There’s the possibility of playing in the Champions League once again”

Meanwhile, Chelsea midfielder Jorginho has revealed he wants to remain a Chelsea player for a long time.

“He was my manager, he wasn’t my friend,” Jorginho said of Sarri. “We worked together for four years but now it is another time and another page. Another time in my life. I look forward to that now.

“I left him but I stayed here and I look to work for our team now, at Chelsea. I have a four-year contract. I am very happy in London and to be at Chelsea. I hope to be here for a long time.”
